I found a few of the sweetest pieces of linen and china on my weekend fleamarket outing, and I always enjoy inspecting the minute details.
Pastels are the theme of the day. It's a bit unusual to find shabby chic colors before someone else has snapped them up, so I feel pretty lucky.
Nothing cheerier than a jumble of floral china all mixed together.
This sweetly embroidered linen is a dresser cloth in perfect condition. I'm often asked about how I whiten linens, but the best trick is just to find them that way! This one came already ironed! (I really have no special tricks BTW!)
The little pitchers can be for gifts or for holding pretty spoons or flowers. I have seen the most darling displays lately with them all grouped together.
This runner would be lovely for a bedside table.
This sample is a large huck towel. I think the little ones are pretty, but a bigger one can actually be put to good use!
I have no idea of the origin of this orphaned teacup. It just begged to be taken home, please. . . .
I am always charmed at the originality and practicality of vintage linens. This one has been finished off in a pink thread after the white one ran out! If you scroll up again to the previous example you will see that a single blue flower has been stitiched in with all the rest to wonderful effect. We are left to wonder whether it is by design, serendipity, or mere necessity. Delightful, either way. . . .
Nothing left but to enjoy the sweet details. . . .
Have a great week!
